Fashion and Textile Design

Robert Gordon University


This course will equip you with a wide range of creative skills and specialist knowledge skills to support your creative potential as a fashion or textile designer. Creative innovation, business and market awareness will be at the core of your projects.

A particular strength of this course is the overlapping of fashion and textile areas, creating design solutions that are reflective of the career opportunities for fashion and textiles graduates. You are encouraged to express a personal design signature whilst responding to a range of studio and workshop-based projects.

Many of your projects will involve designing for particular niche markets, providing a very ‘real’ experience of how the role of the designer impacts on and responds to the consumer. Study is focused on research methods, visualisation including CAD, design process, critical and contextual studies, marketing and professional studies.

In Year 3 you will make an informed decision as to which area you wish to specialise in, whether Fashion or Textiles, in preparation for your Honours project and the Degree Show.
